Get the one-stop download of our popular Samaritan Squares project – including resource links, party tips, and the whole tutorial in one easy-to-read document.
This Tutorial includes the information and step-by-step instructions to make a crochet blanket square to send to an Warm Up America, an Aina-Approved nonprofit that focuses on stopping death from exposure on the streets. They will take your blanket square and knit it together into a blanket to hand out to the homeless in need. Warm Up America distributes warm afghans, caps and other items to tens of thousands of people, thanks to the generosity of knitters and crocheters around the country.
This project is easy enough for children as small as 7 to tackle. It’s the perfect craft for any parent, civic group, or church leader. This is a fantastic opportunity to introduce the idea of homelessness, make a fun craft to help fine motor skills, and do something very positive for the homeless population.
